This is a lifelong illness for me and many others that live with it so to raise awareness and some funds to aid with research and support others going through GBS I am going to climb Pen Y Fan which is the highest peak in South Wales at 2907 feet high and is an 11 mile hike. I will be doing this with the company and most likely physical support of my partner Robert on 1 September 2015 which is the four year anniversary of that awful day.
This is a huge deal for me and will be the hardest challenge I have set myself so if you can spare anything at all to spur me up that mountain I’d appreciate it more than I can ever say.
Emma has now climbed Snowdon and after completing her challenge she told us:
“It went really well, it was pretty tough but I really enjoyed it and I’m happy I managed to complete the challenge. I was in bed recovering for two and a half days afterwards but other than that it was great. I’m thinking of doing Snowdon again next year (watch this space)”
